Our Thailand Project concept is to prepare people working with children the correct rapid response to cardiac arrest due to drowning. Project team is ready to arrive at the begining of the year to different locations in Khao Lak region. This particular area of Thailand has been severly struck by the tsunami in 2004. We hope to create great space for tranings, safety guidance and necessary skills for those participating in cooperation with local authorities and activists.
Organization of the trainings: they are to be short practical sessions of CPR for casualties after drowning.
Each session is planned to last about 90 minutes:
- 20 minutes of introduction
- followed by an hour of exercise on training dummies and of the recovery position
- additional 10 minutes for proceedings in choking situations.
Number of participants in every session is up to 20. We shall arrive in a group of 6-7 instructors which means we can carry out a few sessions in one day. That means a possibility to train even up to 100 people on one day!
Our most important resources are people, we have been teaching together in the field of rescue and first aid for years, that gives us great experience and practice. Qualifications and education: paramedics with training clearances and first aid instructors, experience in providing first aid courses, including assistance to children; English language and physical fitness and good health.
If we manage to raise funds for additional equipment (phantoms –CPR dummies), we can leave them for local communities to allow first aid trainings in the future.
